Love After Lockup Discussion Post - "Rings and Runaways"



This episode was truly one for the books! Home wrecker Michael decides to agitate his wife and her fluctuating blaccent in order to get away from her to sneak off and see his girlfriend, Megan. He does this right after ring shopping with his wife. He then drives off to Niagara Falls where Megan foolishly waits for him. Tracie showed up five hours late to her own wedding where the venue looked like it was King of Diamonds for the AARP set and Clint had some great vows until he uttered "my goddess". Then after Tracie and Clint check in to their honeymoon suite, Tracie runs off with her new husband's phone and car in need of ummm... crack apparently. Matt and Caitlin are freeloading off Matt's mother and Matt doesn't want to look for a job. Caitlin wants to do a date night like a real couple and must give some etiquette lessons to her new beau so food doesn't fly out of his tooth hole. Matt pretends to pull a dine n' dash with Caitlin which she vehemently opposes. Matt also claims that he truly feels superior and that he loves everything that comes before jail. Oh yeah, Misogylino and Brittany talk about his hesitation of meeting her son.

This episode has been brought to you by my lack of dignity and procrastination.

The Late Capitalism of Kpop




-Despite the fact that South Korea became a liberal democracy in the late 80's, its dictatorship like worth ethic remains.
-Kpop is born on visual media, as opposed to western pop which was born on radio stations.
-Kpop is largely monopolized, with SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment, and JYP Entertainment taking most of the cake.
-"slave contracts" allow for those same companies to keep 90% of the profits, with the remaining 10% divided amongst the group.
-Before you make money you have to pay for your living expenses as a trainee. Only one out of a thousand trainees will actually make it.

Michael C. Hall to star in "Skittles Commercial: The Musical"



- Instead of buying a Super Bowl ad, Skittles is putting on a 30-minute musical on Super Bowl Sunday that takes a "self-reflective look at consumerism and the ever-increasing pervasiveness of brand advertising" at The Town Hall. The musical will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

- Michael C. Hall appeared in a commercial to announce the show:

Final Oscar Nomination Predictions from Variety


  • Oscar nominations are less than a day away, so all the pundits are giving their latest and greatest guesses as to who will hear their name called (way too early) tomorrow morning.

  • Variety has chimed in with their guesses for all 24 categories, which you can see at the source. They expect ten nominations for A Star is Born and Roma, eight for The Favourite, and seven a piece for Vice and First Man.

  • They foresee eight Best Picture nominees: BlacKkKlansman, Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma, A Star is Born and Vice.

  • Their choices are largely devoid of surprises, but they do predict that Yalitza Aparicio will be nominated in the Best Actress category for Roma, and that Peter Farrelly will not get a Best Director nomination for Green Book.

What say you, ONTD? Do you agree that these will be the nominees, or do you see any surprises coming?

U.S. Cassette Album Sales Grew 23% in 2018, aided by Britney Spears and more



Move over hipsters with your vinyl albums, cassette tapes are making a comeback! Erm, well, kind of...not exactly. Anyways, Nielsen Music reported that cassette album sales were up 23% with 219,000 copies sold in 2018 compared to 178,000 in 2017 in the US. Compare those numbers to the 50,000 sold in 2014. And if you really want to take it back even further, just to see how much has changed, 246 million cassette albums were sold in 1994.

Billboard acknowledges this isn’t anything major, especially compared to other forms of physical album sales and streaming, but that it is impressive for a “once-dead” format. Why the sudden rise in sales? Billboard attributes this to Living Legend™ Britney Spears, who re-released her debut album ...Baby One More Time on cassette tape late last year exclusively at Target.

In other news, Funko is also releasing a Funko Pop of Britney’s iconic VMA performance for “I’m a Slave 4 U.” Snake included. See it behind the cut.

'Trial and Error' canceled after two seasons at NBC :(




- After NBC did not exercise its option to renew the show for a third season, the studio, Warner Bros. TV, had been trying to find it a new network home, but that search has come up short.

- No word on whether or not WBTV tried to take the show to a streaming service (where it would have been better served, imo).

Fyre Update: Maryann Rolle’s GoFundMe campaign surpasses its goal, thanks everyone




“My life was changed forever, and my credit was ruined by Fyre Fest,” wrote Maryann Rolle on her GoFundMe page, a Bahamian cook who lost her entire life savings and was owed thousands from the organizers of the Fyre Festival. I’m happy to report that the GoFundMe page going around is in fact her’s and as of this posting has surpassed its goal with $141,621 of the $123,000 goal. So if you donated like myself, rest easy.

It’s unfortunate it took nearly 2 years, and that it was only after the documentary was released for Maryann to get justice. After serious backlash, Elliot Tebele, the disgraced owner of FuckJerry and Jerry Media who helped produce the Netflix documentary, donated another $20,000 on top of the $10,000 he first donated.

“I gave every dollar my agency earned from the Fyre Festival back to the go fund me. Others should do the same,” writes a woke Tebele after getting dragged on his Instagram account. “They paid us $30k total (so I paid $10k in the beginning of the gofundme and just added another $20k a few minutes ago). They owed us $185k for all the work we did, but only paid for month one.” Nice save bro, congratulations on doing the bare minimum.

Chris Smith, the director of Netflix’s Fyre documentary, told BuzzFeed News that there are plans for a new GoFundMe for Bahamian workers who still haven’t been paid. How about you guys donate that Netflix money paid for the documentary instead instead of once again asking the public to do it for you, Chris? Elliot?

Ja Rule has also taken to Instagram to apologize to Maryann. “My heart goes out to this lovely lady... MaryAnne Rolle we’ve never met but I’m devastated that something that was meant to be amazing, turn out to be such a disaster and hurt so many ppl... SORRY to anyone who has been negatively effected by the festival... Rule.”

It’s the bare minimum by literally everyone involved...but better than nothing?

ALL MEN!!! - ‘The Incredibles 2’ Director Brad Bird Defends John Lasseter



I'm sure you all remember the disgraced former Disney and Pixar head John Lasseter who recently in the WTF move was hired by Skydance Animation, a move that was met with criticism and outrage. Well, his best buddy Bird Box (director of such films as The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) spoke to The Daily Beast about his career, upcoming projects, pos Lasseter and how he really feels about the #MeToo movement.


The entire thing basically boils down to him defending Lasseter, because of their work history and how he wouldn't have made some of the movies he's made if it hadn't been for John. He wants people to forget about their own abuse and move on, because that's not what's important. HE JUST WANTS TO MAKE MOVIES AND FOR PEOPLE TO FOCUS ON THAT!!!

Spotify is rolling out a new feature that will allow users to block certain musicians



• Spotify is currently testing out the feature in its latest iOS update.

• The feature lets you block an artist entirely so that none of their songs play from a library, a playlist, chart list, or even Spotify’s radio station.

• Last year Spotify was pressured to remove songs from “controversial” artists (read: total scumbags) like R. Kelly and xxxtentacion on their service. They never did, so this new feature seems designed for users to make their own choices on which artist they don’t want to support.

ONTD Favs Backstreet Boys and Chance the Rapper Will Be in a Superbowl Commercial Slot



Doritos is promoting their new 'Flamin Hot Nacho' flavor with 90's band the Backstreet Boys and Chance the Rapper - a unconventional combo. A denim filled teaser was released a few days ago, and the official ad will appear during one of the most viewed televised programs: the Super Bowl (Feb. 3rd 2019).

The two acts have been scathing by from certain remarks, including a fellow band member being accused of sexual assault, another one willing to perform for Tr*mp, and Chance the Rapper being... honest.

Do you think they will beef up a possible halftime show slot one year and nostalgia will work its magic?

Steven Universe Season 5 Finale



- The Steven Universe 5th season ended with an hour-long special, and allegedly a movie is coming in the fall, as well as a 6th season.

- There were moments, but for a VERY brief recap (and I recommend to watch it and not be spoiled if you've kept up with the show):

[Spoiler (click to open)]- As for the MAIN premise of the episode: Steven is eventually able to speak to White Diamond and convince her to fix the corrupted gems... that's it lol. Maybe they talked about not conquering worlds anymore?


- Steven had an out of body experience when his gem was momentarily removed by White. They realized that Pink was not present and that Steven was his own person.

- Steven got to fuse with Pearl and Garnet, and the whole gang formed Obsidian (the coolest part of the show and something I've always wanted to see omg).


- Everyone is back on earth. Peace, love, all that good stuff.


How'd yall feel about the finale?
